This speaks for itself. An absolute must if you're in the area. Plenty of viewing room. An honor really. Seeing the Honor Flight Serviceman was humbling.

They do changing of the guard which is very interesting to watch. You are not allowed to go up there or throw flowers over there. That's why there is a guard.
